Awkward Prom

If the Jonas Brothers reuniting and Hootie and the Blowfish going on tour wasn’t enough nostalgia for ya, get ready to relive the high school glory days: it’s fake prom night, baby!!! Join Tribe 12’s community of 20s / 30s for an evening that’s equal parts silly, nostalgic and hopelessly awkward. Dance the night away to your fave songs, do your hair real big (to quote one of the most iconic high school movies: It’s full of secrets), and get ready to party like it’s about to be graduation- erm, we mean, summer. It’s all the fun of prom without any of the pressure!

We’re pulling out all the stops to make this a night to remember! Your ticket includes…

-A drink ticket for a beer, well drink, or mocktail (after that there’s a cash bar with an ATM on site)
-Yummy bar bites
-DJ spinning throwbacks and your requests (and yesss a few slow dances)
-Photobooth with a backdrop for all your cringeworthy photo needs
-Wallflower corner with icebreakers, board games, and coloring books — a great place to hang out if you are new to Tribe 12 or looking to meet people!
-Unofficial after party at the usually-members-only Ruba Speakeasy downstairs

Door prizes if you wear what you wore to prom (or something super similar) or DIY any part of your outfit! If this will be your first Tribe 12 event, message us on Facebook about a special prize 🙂

We planned this night to be kinda fancy (we invite you to dress up!) but less $$$ than the gala your boujie coworker keeps inviting you to, so tickets are just $30 before April 20th / $40 until the day of / $50 at the door (no one will be turned away for lack of funds — email yo@tribe12.org).

PLUS: Get discount tickets!!! Ask a “date” to prom — a friend, partner, coworker, person you’ve been crushing on, your grandma… anyone! — and you both get half price tickets! Just share a photo or video of your “promposal” on Facebook or Instagram, tag Tribe 12 and use the hashtags #t12awkwardprom and #t12promposal. We’ll send you and your date a discount code for half price tix (or send you a partial refund if you already bought them).
